Abstract

This paper reports on a number of cases involving injuries resulting in low back pain. Case history is given together with an ergonomic evaluation profile. An aggressive low back rehabilitation program has been applied to all reported cases. The result of this rehabilitation effort related to improvement of functional abilities is given. The relationship to job environment is also discussed. The paper demonstrates the cost effectiveness considerations of low back pain rehabilitation programs with combined reference to worker's compensation laws, health care costs and productivity factors involved.
